First GWT Steps

Just started to work with GWT – a pretty interesting approach for web development compared to PHP or JSF. The whole Application engine is quite impressive especially allowing you to quickly test your applications locally by supporting automatic hot deployment after each code update.
One thing that took me a while was one of that “[ERROR] Unable to find ‘[some-file].xml’ on your classpath; could be a typo, or maybe you forgot to include a classpath entry for source?” errors. If you are sure the file is in place, I realized restarting the App Engine or Eclipse mostly solves that problem.
